Amazing, isn't it?
Nevertheless, surface of the insect (or bird, or any other surface of some roughness) don't have to be polished to be glossy (Rayleigh criterion); you can check it by yourself: take mat paper, bend it in "upside down U form", point it to a lamp and look at it in small grazing angles.
Arguing with fool is like playing chess with pigeon: he will scatter pieces, peck King's crown, crap on bishop, and fly away bragging how he won the game... (heard once, author unknown).

I wish those darn aliens would just land and settle all this controversy. Then we can focus on something other than UFO's or aliens. Most of the real aliens are in government anyways. They are so far out of touch that they live in their own little world of world domination etc. And if those unseen hazards are man made they are going to cause an accident one day by zipping around like they do.
Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Lot of discussion over a video of a couple bugs...
Ageed! They are just far enough away that the wings don't show much, but in some of the videos you can see what looks like wing beats.
Would UFO enthusiasts take lots of videos and only show the ones that were deceptive? And not the ones that clearly showed the objects to be bugs?
Was the experiment repeated in other fields and aimed in other directions? Possibly it only looks like they are swarming over Denver, because that is the only place they have ever aimed the camera at...

It is a bug. The camera is focused on the city not close range, the bug is flying close to the lense. I can't believe they even said on the news that it is not a bug, it is clearly exactly what you would see if you took a camera to a field focused on the distance and a bug flew by the lense. The only reason it is even on the news is to get ratings.
